Picture of Congressional Candidate for US MO 5th District Jacob TurkJanuary 24, 2012 – The President has had 3 years to grow the economy and put people back to work.  Unemployment has been above 8% for 35 months.  It is much higher among African-Americans.  This is not acceptable.  Employers are not hiring because this administration has created so many new regulations, raising the cost of doing business and making it nearly impossible for small businesses to get loans.”

“As a father, I am deeply concerned about the debt we are leaving our children.  We need to cut spending so that we can keep our promises to seniors, keep our military strong and ensure our nation’s fiscal stability.”

“As a Marine veteran, I appreciate the President’s thanking of the troops for their service.”

“The President’s call for unity needs to be followed up with action, not just rhetoric.  I’m glad to learn that, like me, he supports ending insider trading in Washington.”
